Absolutely beautiful reddish-brown beer with a very nice light brown foam that slowly sinking, but retains a nice head. Nice malty aroma boosts expectations, as the flavor also contains some distress, coriander, chocolate and fruit. It has a fatty mouth feeling and great bulkiness. Sweet touch of caramel mixed with mild chocolate, slightly spicy flavor and a rich fruitiness. jamaty (2232) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Usa 5 maltas, maiz y caña de azúcar. Marrón, con apenas carbonización y espuma. Aroma complejo que mezcla hierbas con agradable malta tostada. Mucho cuerpo y sabor muy agradable llenando la boca de matices, en medio de un conjunto en el que predominan dulces maltas, acompañadas de lúpulos aromáticos ,especialmente en el final, seco. Muy buena. Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Christmas beer (which is also what the name litterally means) brewed in Belgium by a Danish brewery. Five malt types and two kinds of sugar have been used here. Off-white, coarse head, copper colour with brownish hue, clear. Aroma of toffee, caramel, cinnamon, kahlua, coriander, cider, pear, sage. Resinous palate, very caramelly with lots of overripe fruits, yeasty bitterishness, spicy accents, hoppy finish. Apparently also used as a component of a beer called Hoppy Christmas. Nice winter warmer, almost like a full barley wine. ansalon (4102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pretty subdued with caramel, some cloves and brown sugar. Solid, but nothing spectacular.

A pretty good beer anyway but still difficult to understand. The smell is pretty good. The taste is not what I had imagined. But okay anyway. The aftertaste is thin and weak.

Bottle at home. Vintage 2010. The colour is very hazy reddish brown with a frothy medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, leather, oak and some alcohol and heather. Much of the same in the flavour but feels sweeter with the addition of caramel, brown sugar and some chocolate. The mouthfeel is slick, and has a light bitterness. A rich and tasteful beer but is also surprisingly light in one way. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle (33cl). Hazy, golden brown colour. Finger-thick offwhite head, goo retention, some lacing. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel, dried fig, spices, hint of vinegar. Medium body, soft carbonation. Semi-sweet malty taste, nicely balanced by a fruity acidity and mild bitterness. Pyrmir (6197) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2012
330 ml bottle. Aroma caramel sweet and of various dried fruits. Smells a bit like homebrew. Taste rich and full, of caramel and dark sugar. Sweet with little bitterness. ken1 (2075) - DENMARK - NOV 7, 2012
